AirPods Max are the best headphones Apple makes, but due to their hefty price tag, they can be quite a tough sell. However, this Prime Day you can get $100 off the usual price at $449, which makes them a much better solution as a great pair of premium noise-canceling headphones.

Right now you can save almost 20% on the entire color lineup of Apple's best headphones, making this the best Prime Day AirPod deal we've seen so far.

AirPods Max for less.

We absolutely loved AirPods Max in our review thanks to their tremendous sound and build quality as well as their distinctive design. From our review:

The AirPods Max are the best headphones that I currently own. The sound on these are fantastic — the soundstage is amazing and makes you feel like you're up front in a concert hall, so you can really make out all of the tiny details in your music. And if you've ever wanted to have your music louder, the AirPods Max have zero distortion at max volumes, so you can blast them as loud as you want (just be wary of the audio bleed around others). The ANC is even better than the AirPods Pro, which was already impressive, and Spatial Audio is pretty mind-blowing, though it's something that you really need to experience first-hand to understand. If you plan on using AirPods Max for audio or video calls, then understand that the nine mic array works great to make you sound as best you can, but others will still be able to tell that you're using a headset.

AirPods Max work best with other Apple products like the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. If you aren't after AirPods, you can always check out these Prime Day Apple deals for more inspiration.
